The tall wiring fences that surround electrical substations suggest that such places are not accessible to the public. Let it be known that substations are extremely dangerous and the safety signs will tell you that. The signs read as either “Danger”, “Caution”, “Warning”, “No Entry”, or “High Voltage Risk Ahead”. The various machineries inside the facility carry high voltage risks, and trespassers who dare to come near the place put themselves in danger.
